    10 years after.
    Hard to believe.
    Maybe I've captured too many photons in Japan and should let them all free.
    And just get on down that road.



    Pity about sloth and laziness etc.

    This is where they manufacture the Nexus Generation Tetrapods

    This is a surf break on Tanegashima.
    Sorry, I can't reveal its name, even in English.

    [​IMG]

    This a local gentleman of Japan, walking his dog.
    Even though you can't see it.
    Sorry, I cant reveal his name, even if I knew it.
    Unfortunately, nor that of the unseen dog.
    You could call it "Spot", if that makes you feel better.
    They seemed to walk a lot. Like twice a Japanese Standard Day.
    We were there for 6 Japanese Standard days, observing keenly all the time.

    [​IMG]

    This is a Japanese beach, as we say in English. Please note the water on the left side of the image.

    [​IMG]

    This is the same beach.
    Believe it or not.
    Hey, the Dark Drones are all around.

    Are they always there?
    Search me.
    One hopes not, but you could just post a question.

    A familiar sounding ditty.
    The culture shock still gets to me after 20 circulations of Sol.

    Order is restored.
    Sunlit windless morning.
    First out the concerned slalom pole placers.
    Crazy gaijin laying down Japanese carves on a ridiculously wide board.
    Army poaching the powder runs.
    The quad mysteriously closed for maintenance.
    All within sight of all the madness and all courtesy of all those dead Permian creatures.
